What is International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It has become a date to celebrate how far women have come in society, politics and in economics, whilst also addressing the significant inequalities that still remain.
Every year, people are encouraged to celebrate the women that inspire them - be it in their own homes or in wider society - and while this is positive, there are many strikes and protests organised to raise awareness of the continued gender inequality too.
Every year, International Women’s Day celebrates a different theme.
This year’s theme calls for women around the world to #BreaktheBias, with a focus on campaigning for a more gender equal world that is free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination.
